military personnel

2011 changes to the Servicemembers’ Civil Relief Act give active military personnel additional protections?  The act allows for servicemembers to terminate a lease in cases of deployment or reassignment.  The act also gives service members and their families certain protections from eviction.

A servicemember may terminate a residential lease for three reasons: entering active duty, permanent change of station orders, or orders to deploy for a period of not less than 90 days. 

In addition, tenants may be able to postpone an eviction for non-payment of rent for up to three months if the court believes that the servicemember or dependent is unable to pay rent as a direct result of the servicemember’s military duties.
